I volunteered at the Los Angeles International Women's Film Festival and I saw a great majority of the films being played there. Many were great. However, The Sisterhood of Night in my opinion was the best film of them all. It had great messages in it about friendships, adolescence, love, lies, and the power of media. This film is a masterpiece of interwoven fine art. The dance scenes, the music, the visuals, and the location all combined make one excellent display of what great film artwork should look like. I loved how the main characters friendship made me reflect on my own teenage years and brought me visions of my lifelong best friends. I loved the mysterious rituals of the film. The errieness of the dark and unknown. The woods, the serenity, night scenes, and rain reminded me of some of my best high school memories in Washington state. The vide ographer did an amazing job of filming light in darkness. The main character was intriguing and powerful with her unique look and care free spirit. I can not believe this film is not on the big screen. Most of the scenes look much better than large budget films. I came home telling my teenager about it and told her she missed out by not attending the festival. I also told her that I hoped this film would be available on a DVD so she could watch it. Overall this film on the sisterhood of teenage females is long over due. Hats off to the writer, the crew, and cast. This film is meant for the big screen just showing at festivals does not do it justice. Loved it so much had to follow the actors and crew on Instagram. The people that are a part of this production are just as amazing as the film. I plan on sending this film once available to my nieces and other loved ones.
